GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Crews responded to multiple scenes across the Upstate Friday as storms caused down trees and power outages.

Duke Energy said, at one point, a power outage in Greenville County was impacting more than 1,200 customers on Friday.

People in the area said stores and traffic lights in the Cherrydale area were impacted by the outage.

Duke Energy reports the outage was caused by “equipment going offline.” Power was restored by 4 p.m.

The Anderson Fire Department said crews responded to Webb Street after wind knocked over a large dead tree and knocked down multiple services lines to a house. Thankfully, no damage or injuries were reported. However, officials are still working to clear the road.
